Did you know that over 3.5 million American’s take the train to work every day? For these people, this often means lots of walking in all types of conditions and having to carry all sorts of items with you, such as laptops, tablets, files, lunch, even a change of shoes and clothes. Trying to pack all of this into a conventional briefcase is daunting, plus the idea of carrying all of this weight on your shoulder makes my back wince. For people who travel to work like this every day, a rolling briefcase is a lifesaver. Here are a few of our favorites.
If you are a daily commuter who has to travel in all sorts of conditions, then durability should be your primary concern. Our favorite wheeled briefcase is Briggs & Riley’s medium expandable brief. Every Briggs & Riley item comes with the Simple as That® guarantee which covers all the functional aspects of the case. The wheels can even be changed with a free self-repair kit. Other features include a padded, removable laptop case, RFID pockets, and an expansion that can be used for extra files or a change of clothes. This is truly a road warrior’s best friend.
For the woman who is looking for a wheeled brief that is stylish and still durable, we recommend Cabrelli’s line of rolling cases. Every case is constructed of durable faux leather or PVC and rollerblade wheels and includes separate compartments for laptops and tablets. In addition, all Cabrelli cases can be attached to a larger piece of luggage if you wish to use this bag as your carry-on. Styles change so check our website frequently for the new colors.
People who work in the legal profession and salespeople who carry samples need more room for larger items. The good news is that these cases don’t need to be basic and boring. The Mosiac 18’’ wheeled leather catalog case features durable black matte leather, a deluxe telescoping handle, and a built-in padded tablet pocket. For security, it even has two included combination locks. Even more good news: it is now 30% off, so it’s a great value.
Do you have a friend or family member who is struggling with their commute? Then a wheeled briefcase makes a perfect gift for the holidays or a birthday. Trust us, their back will thank you.
